Fall Inspiration

Well the KW Knitter’s Fair was on Saturday and it always makes me actually believe that autumn is a reality. I have a love hate relationship with fall because I think it’s one of the most beautiful seasons we have in Canada but it also signifies that winter is coming. Some people try to tell me that they love winter. Bull…!!! Seriously! Maybe you’d love winter if you lived in Whistler and could ski for free everyday but come on! It’s cold and dark and depressing, lol! The only thing I like about winter is having our fireplace on in the family room and those lovely sunny days we get where the snow is glistening, the sky is blue and all seems right with the world.

I digress…as usual I worked at Julie’s booth from the Needle Emporium at the fair. John was very cute on Saturday morning because I woke up and he was already dressed in a vest I knit him years ago. He wasn’t coming to the show but he was showing great solidarity, eh…

The Technicolour Cowl Kits were particularly popular and we almost sold out! Here’s the one mom knit for me this summer…

Don’t worry if you missed the show in Kitchener you can join us in Woodstock on October 17th at the fibre and fleece festival. Click here for more info. I haven’t been to this show in ages so am looking forward to seeing what’s what. More than anything these shows are good inspiration. I always come home and feel like knitting again.

  1. i love those cowels. What gorgeous fabric. And btw, one thing you should add to winter are candelit dinners-every night of the week. It is something we do from the first dinner in the fall that is dark….although for safety reasons it’s been more spotty bç of the toddler this past winter. But I love it and always miss it once we spring forward and dinners are again in the light. We should try and get out cross country skiing this winter. Talk soon,
